| Xerox have been busy again, this time with their new DocuColor 8000AP Digital Press. The machine provides excellent image quality at 80ppm, regardless of the paper weight or media type running through the system. The new colour press handles a wide range of media - from coated and uncoated papers to transparencies - and can even cope with synthetic materials such as polyester to create high-value unique applications including glossy books and magazines, promotional flyers and direct mail, specialty items including magnets and window decals, and durable papers that resist tearing even when wet. An 'All Weights' mode sets the press to run at 80ppm - regardless of paper stock, weight or type, up to 300gsm - and combines this with the ability to print duplex at rated speed makes the machine a productive piece of equipment. A 'Single Weight' mode, which varies the print speed based on the paper stock, lets print providers achieve a glossier look and feel. The DocuColor 8000AP offers versatility to print a wider variety of applications that can be tailored to customer preference. For example, jobs such as signage or short-run magazines and catalogues may require a glossier look and feel while others such as photo books, marketing collateral or hybrid offset/digital applications require a more matte appearance. The DocuColor 8000AP Digital Press is available now and will star on the Xeretec stand at DPW. For further information visit www.xeretec.co.uk. Telephone for preview: 0800 216641.
